Additive manufacturing is radically changing the way products are made. What is additive manufacturing? It’s a process that creates a physical object from a digital design using 3D printing technology. Additive manufacturing adds material, layer upon layer, to create a finished product—from a pair of sports shoes to NASA rocket parts.
It is prepared to play a huge role in the future of manufacturing.
Additive manufacturing goes a giant step beyond traditional manufacturing methods. It’s capable of using more complex designs and delivering dramatically better results via a simplified fabrication process. This gives manufacturers increased flexibility and faster production times, which leads to real innovation. Manufacturers can make products that, until now, remained on the drawing board.
